PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A select few of Portland’s favorite breweries are reminding customers that they serve more than just beer throughout the month, which is why this March marks the first-ever Portland Brewery Dining Month.
Ecliptic Brewing, a brewpub located in North Portland, announced the inaugural Brewery Dining Month in late February.
“Join us this March for Portland’s Brewery Dining Month, where we’re not only celebrating our city’s fine craft beer, but also the delicious food that breweries create in their own kitchens!” the brewery said in an Instagram post.
The event is inspired by Portland Dining Month, which hasn’t been held since March 2020 — when COVID-19 caused a number of restaurants to change their business models or close down permanently.
From 2009 to 2020, many restaurants used Portland Dining Month as an opportunity to offer cost-effective three-course meals to their guests.
Travel Portland says the popular event is no longer running; however, Portlanders can expect a similar experience when they dine with the breweries below up until Friday, March 31.
